Date Fri, 05 Aug 2011 12:05:27 GMT
Making Storage Engine Pluggable
-------------------------------

                 Key: CASSANDRA-2995
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2995
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 0.8.2
            Reporter: Muga Nishizawa
             Fix For: 1.0


Will you design and implement Cassandra's storage engine API like MyCassandra?

MyCassandra provides extensible architecture for pluging other storage engines to Cassandra
like MySQL.  
https://github.com/sunsuk7tp/MyCassandra/
  
It could be advantageous for Cassandra to make the storage engine pluggable.  This could allow
Cassandra to 
- deal with potential use cases where maybe the current sstables are not the best fit
- allow several types of internal storage formats (at the same time) optimized for different
data types
- allow easier experiments and research on new storage formats (encourage research institutions
to do strange things with Cassandra)
- there could also be potential advantages from better isolation of the data engine in terms
of less risk for data corruptions if other parts of Cassandra change
